One of the most iconic paintings of modern art, is "Munch's The Scream". I've seen this painting online for years and it has always aroused my curiosity. Interestingly, Mr. Munch never got married and his mother died when he was very young.
Many of the artist I've found remarkable, have had some type of tortured soul experience and some even going mad.
The big question today, is how do people deal with frustration and anger?
Some get therapy, while others drink. Of course, there are other avenues, which don't need to be mentioned, that many of us take, that are decisions of total desperation.
The worst thing one can do is put their anger out on someone else. It's never wise to vent all your frustrations out on someone who is innocent, which is insane, and yet it happens.
I use to hit an Everlast punching bag when I was a teen, to get that extra negative energy out and it's quite effective. Growing up, I remember someone telling me that it's good to go off somewhere in the wilderness or in a wide open field, where no one can hear you, and SCREAM!
Just remember, it's never healthy to bottle up everything. It's wise to RELEASE it!
Whenever I look at "Munch's The Scream" I think of what that person told me about getting alone and yelling my head off. Not to mention, I've seen this kind of therapy done in movies, where a person just can't take it anymore, and they lose it, and start shouting to the high heavens.
Amazingly, Archie McPhee came up with a great concept by creating a gag toy, that looks like "Munch's The Scream" and it actually screams. This would be a wonderful novelty to put on your desk, or to give to someone who has a high stress job.
I think anyone who is going through a tough time will appreciate this fabulous and unsettling toy. If it makes one person laugh or helps relieve anxiety, than this toy has done its job!
